Downhill skiing

    Hi Guys,

    Any views on how good Training Peaks hrTSS score is for an easy day of lift served piste skiing.

    I had a 5.5hr easy day today – 22 runs, almost 7000m vertical, and HR was 6 mins in Z2, 27 mins in Z1 and rest below Z1. It wasn’t meant to be a training day, but TPs gave me hrTSS of 186 – I know I was out for over 5 hours but it does seem high.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks as always,

    Considering just the skiing time and heart rate, it seems high. You can check the table in the article below and get a good estimate –

    Hi Shashi – that’s useful.

    I’m comfortable with RPE so happy to use that. All I need to do now is estimate how much of the day was actually skiing – I guess sitting on a chairlift going up doesn’t count :-(((

    Thanks for quick response.

    Unfortunately TP seems to record that as vertical ascent. I keep a spreadsheet that adjusts for that as editing the workout in TP doesn’t seem to allow me to adjust the vertical.

    Mariner – you can change the workout type to XC Ski and adjust the vertical. Not ideal, but should work.
